Another blown connecting rod. This is a Tecumseh HMSK 90, 9HP from an ARIENS snowblower. Fortunately the block didn’t crack.

    A thrown rod on a tecumseh engine, with no broken block? Miracle! About 90% of engines I’ve seen with thrown rods, were Tecumseh engines…..and every one of them had broken blocks where the starter would mount.

    @shinyfuzzy yeah buy a clutch with a set screw.

  3. shinyfuzzy says:

    @donyboy73 thanks thats what i was planning to try so thanks for the proof of concept 😀

  4. donyboy73 says:

    @shinyfuzzy i have drilled and tapped a hole for a shaft before. use a 5/16 or 3/8 bolt and use the proper tap

  5. shinyfuzzy says:

    @donyboy73 like a threaded hole in the end of the crankshaft, i has a briggs and stratton with no hole on the end and the crank looks like some fucktard cut off the pulley instead of just taking it off

  6. donyboy73 says:

    @shinyfuzzy u mean for a bolt or the shaft for a keyway?

  7. shinyfuzzy says:

    can u put a clutch on a motor if there is no hole in the crankshaft?

  8. donyboy73 says:

  9. donyboy73 says:
